. the key role of the united states for better or worse in haiti's recent history. >> reporter: unlike the earthquake that's focused international attention on it once again, haiti's fate has not been inevitable. once the richest colony in the americas, a slave revolt against the french occupation occurred, haiti was established as the first black republic. under threat of invasion, the country agreed to compensate france for loss of property. a debt that took 120 years to repay. and launched a cycle of debt, dependence and instability. after almost three decades of dictatorship, former catholic priest jean bertrand aristide was elected. just nine months later, he was ousted in a military coop. death squads rampaged through the country. terrorizing aristide supporters. in 1994, then president bill clinton and a fleet of u.s. marines, backed aristide's return to power, but not before he agreed to a program of economic adjustment, monitored by the international monetary fund and world bank, marked by downsizing, privatization and deregulation. tariffs on foreign rights for example, were

shows the global imbalance, which has more to do with fiscal policies in the united states, the household savings rates in the united states and the distortions in china, which inflates their savings rate artificially. that has to do with the international exchange. the international exchange is essentially a way for these economies to be adapting to the pressures and these distortions, which really have to do with the domestic policy. >> since the issue is so important and so treacherous, i would like to ask if the other panelists have any comments for this question. >> let me complain about this component, the most concerning aspect of this is in the financial sector. this is being promoted by many people in the official sector, who say that one way to make the system safer is to do this. this is, in a way, very understandable because of the problems that many of the smaller countries or dealing with. if we go down this route and we have protectionism with financial services, this will carry with it some bad implications. the least of which is that much of the growth in t

worry that the united states may sink into deflation and that was one consequence of the rate hitting zero bound. limiting the scope. those decisions in this period were faced with the risk of hitting zero-bound, policy makers should control the rates and being constrained by the lower bound on the policy interest rate. although these were warranted in policies in subsequent years, the question remains if the policy was necessary. since we cannot know how the economy would evolve under policies, the answer to this question is conjectual. one approach by this question is to compare policies during this period and the recommendations from the taylor rule, developed by john taylor of stanford university. this approach is subject to a number of indications. notably simple policy rules like the taylor rule are only rules of thumb and important people can disagree about the details of such rules. moreover simple rules may leave out factors that may be relevant such as the risk of the policy rate hitting zero-bound. which is why we don't make policy based on such rules alone. for these reaso

not demonstrated this capability. as the president of the united states noted in his state of the union address last night, the bank bailout was about as popular as a route canal. -- as a root canal. well, it appears that chairman bernanke will be reconfirmed, but i want to express with my vote that the leaders of president president obama's economic team must pivot from the necessary rescue of our major financial institutions to equally if not more necessary help to america's families. in prioritizing the recovery of wall street, leaders at the fed and the treasury, i believe, made significant errors in several key areas. failing to establish a due process mechanism to legally make adjustments to wall street pay, bonuses, and counterparty liabilities so they all had to be paid 100 cents on the dollar. hoarding the tarp reserve for banks long after banks were secure when families were desperate for help, but no, they clung to that reserve just in case the banks needed it. never mind the present need of american families. third, allowing the banks to prevent families in this chamber fighting aga

, there will be less of a demand for the labor coming into the united states. >> we have time for one more quick question. the gentleman in the back? >> this is for the author of the study. i am a little bit perplexed about how to describe the late 1980's, when this was implemented, as weaker labor demand. unemployment was at a high level in 1982 at 10%. the average was 7.5% in 1982 and continued to go down into 1991. the immediate implementation was a time of strong labor market growth. >> like to put up the graft, but from 1988 until 1991, is when we do see unemployment rates growing from about 5.8%. . unemployment rate going up from about 5.8% to about 7.8%. so it was exactly during that period of time with growing unemployment that occurred, that's basically what doomed the second term for george bush, exactly during this period of time when the legalization took place. so i think that it's -- we had a weakening labor market. we had a growing unemployment rate exactly during the moment when we saw not only legalization take place but these wage increases taking place and this movement -- thi

of threat to the united states. both got hit by a big disaster, and i think both responded very, very positively. i think -- i don't disagree with a single thing the president said that he was doing better. in the future, when someone like this guy's father comes into an embassy, we won't just make a little note about it, we're going to pull his visa and see to it that he doesn't get on an airplane. but i think there are a couple of things that the president didn't say that i wish he had talked about. we now know that these terrorists are almost all young male muslims from about a dozen countries. it seems to me that we ought to at least begin a certain degree of profiling. and say that every such person gets special kinds of screening before they get on a plane coming to the united states when they are not citizens of the united states itself. that's number one. and number two, he didn't change his view on whether or not someone like this guy should be charged in a criminal court and given fifth amendment rights. i'm convinced that he should first be treated as an enemy combatant and

concern for the united states. and then it seems to falter for a number of reasons. it appears that progress is made but then when it goes back to iran, the deal that was worked out falls apart. was this planned on the part of the iranian government? or was this truly just some sort of miscommunication by those who were in geneva and said, yes, we can do this, and it gets back to tehran, it doesn't work. >> yeah, i don't think i would bury that proposal. it's still ongoing. the suggestion -- >> you think this is still open? >> still open. initially, iran actually accepted the u.n./u.s. proposal, which was enrichment would be taking place in russia, in france. then they backed away from that. but -- >> just to remind people, this is so that the nuclear material, in theory, would not be then able to be used in some sort of weapon. >> right. it would be enriched abroad and then given to iran in limited amounts for medical purposes. and iran originally accepted that. then when it went to tehran, there was obviously, behind closed doors, division. they rejected that. >> are we suppo

states became a global power and i'm thinking back to the monroe doctrine about the united states and our sphere of influence, you are asking about strategic interest in rebuilding haiti. i do think that there is interest on the part of the united states strategically to engage haiti and make sure that this epic human catastrophe resolves itself, and this is going to take a very long time, but look, the united states was the first one to announce humanitarian help. we're always the biggest contributor when natural disasters happen in the world. no other country on the face of the earth in the history of the world does more to help people in situations like this than the united states of america. we always deliver. the question is, how best to do this? and when you look back since 1992, since the clintons were in office, what you've seen is a dedication of $3 billion from the united states going into haiti. it is still incredibly poor despite all of this effort on the part of the united states and other nations. in fact, haiti has the greatest number of nongovernmental organizations, ngos,

that of the united states in 2027 at 4:00 in the afternoon on the 25th of december. but i wonder what you're telling us about china employs anything more than that. in other words, it's not clear that your civilization state with its tradition of tributary relations with its neighbors and yes, maybe some african countries today, have an aspiration to rule the world. could you tell us if there is, in fact, some prospect of that? that doesn't seem to be in the tradition you're describing. and therefore, why worry? >> well, i think you put your finger on a very important distinction between the chinese tradition and the western tradition. they do share, they both are civilizations which have a strong sense of university. unlike japan for example, which it never did have a. but the way that's expressed is very different. whereas the century the european tradition sought to project it at the time across the world, and i suppose the colonial tradition was the most dramatic illustration of this, the chinese tradition have to do that. and by and large, except on the territory as it were of the chinese conti

you have to speak to it? >> oh, sure, yes, i do. gularly. here in the united states, in europe and in the middle east. that assertion is based on the assumption that the united states cannot at the same time be totally committed to israel's security-- which we are-- and be totally committed to the creation of the palestinian state-- which we are. and i believe that those are not mutually exclusive. to the contrary, that i believe they are mutually reinforcing. it will help israel get security for its people if the palestinians have a state and this issue is over. >> rose: george mitchell for the hour. next. if you've had a coke in the last 20 years, ( screams ) you've had a hand in giving college scholarships... and support to thousands of our nation's... most promising students. ♪ ( coca-cola 5-note mnemonic ) captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: george mitchell is here. he is president obama's special envoy to the middle east, the former maine senator and majority leader has a proven record of brokerin
